I generally stay away from shower gels because the water at my place is really heavy and salty and it would take a whole lot of effort to get rid of the slipperiness of the gels, so I generally use the lathery foamy soaps to do the job and Oriflame’s Grapes and Echinacea is a shower gel that I am using after a really long time.

My Take on Oriflame Naturals Shower Gel With Antioxidant Grapes And Echinacea
This 200 mL transparent bottle contains thick viscous fluid which strongly smells of
grape juice and some other tangy substance. It has a flip-flop cap, which is very travel friendly, though I have not traveled with it, but I think so. It is not exactly the kind of smell that I would like on me right after bathing. It lathers up okay and not so much, but it does not leave any slipperiness either which is so common if you salty water at your place. There is no dryness or stretching after taking a shower with it and many times I felt the urge to skip body lotion. Quantity wise, only a small amount of gel is required and this 200 mL of gel will last you close to 2 months.
About the antioxidant thing, I am not quite sure what antioxidant effects you are supposed to watch out for, though upon researching on the net, I found that grapes and Echinacea do have antioxidant and conditioning properties.
Except for the strong scent, I am quite satisfied with this shower gel.
PROs of Oriflame Naturals Shower Gel With Antioxidant Grapes And Echinacea:
- Highly conditioning shower gel.
- Does not leave behind any slipperiness on the skin.
- Does not cause dryness of the skin after a shower as is seen with beauty soaps.
CONs of Oriflame Naturals Shower Gel With Antioxidant Grapes And Echinacea:
- Strong tangy scent which is not exactly appealing.
Will I Purchase it Again: I would want to try the other shower gels from the catalogue, but not this for a while.
IMBB Star Rating: 3/5…..and -2 entirely for the “non-appealing” scent.
